Readers, grab your bookmarks and get ready for some more film and tv adaptations! Next up: Daniel José Older’s Shadowshaper is coming to a screen near you!
Actress and Older enthusiast, Anika Noni Rose is satisfying the hearts of many with the news that her production company has acquired the rights to the fantasy series that introduced the world to Sierra Santiago. This is the second option from Rose who also acquired the rights to Older’s Bone Street Rumba series!
For those of you who haven’t read Shadowshaper (firstly, wyd?), this is the story of Sierra Santiago, a Brooklyn teenager who discovers her shadowshaping powers and becomes the superhero we all didn’t know we needed. We recently caught up with Older after he dropped his surprise novella from the Shadowshaping universe and here’s what he had to say about his characters, community, and the superpowers we all have.
